9/16/2015- Due to the McDowell vs Prep JV Football game being played Monday @ 6 p.m., The Penguins ticket distribution has been moved to Wednesday, September 23rd @ 6 p.m. at the Erie Dek Hockey Rink. I apologize for the inconvenience but I just found out about the game being played Monday.
9/16/2015- Penguins tickets have arrived! Please be at the Erie Dek Hockey Rink on Monday (9/21) at 6 p.m. to claim your tickets. CANCELLED.
9/14/2015- Please remember to patronize our sponsors, they care a great deal about youth sports in the area. Brick House Coffee (Stop in for a pumpkin Latte), Moe’s Southwest Grill (Try a “Joey Bag a donuts”), Ugly Tuna Tavern (Wednesday and Thursday nights 8-11 are .30 cent wing nights, and they are good!), Auto Spa Car Wash (26th & Millfair, A clean car is a happy car!), Orthopedic and Sports Medicine of Erie (Unfortunately, the Tupek’s visit this place waaaaay too much!), Lake Shore Country Club (perfect place for a fall round of golf), Sports Obsession (located in the mall, sad to say but Christmas isn’t far off!). Please check them out!
9/14/2015- I believe that I was able to accommodate everyone with the total number of tickets requested, keep checking back to this site daily for updates as to when the tickets can be picked up. There will only be one pick up date and the location will be the Erie Dek Hockey rink, the date and time will be announced as soon as I have the tickets in hand. Please let everyone know to check this site for updates. I will post as soon as the tickets arrive.
9/11/2015- The Pittsburgh Penguins recently reached out to our league and offered our players 75 FREE tickets to their game on September 26th. The only catch is this … we are allowed 1 adult ticket for every 4 children’s tickets up to a total of 75. It breaks down to 18 adult tickets and 57 youth tickets. These are available on a first come first serve basis and all that you have to do is email me by this Sunday night at 8 p.m. and tell me how many you would like. It looks as though we will have quite a few extras so if you want to take friends and family let me know and I will try my best to accommodate everyone.
8/19/2015- Thank you to all of the parents who made this a fun and exciting season for each of their children! We hope to continue to grow in the coming years, please help spread the word. 2016 registrations will begin April 1st online and end June 1st 2016. Cost per player will be the same as it always has been ($75) we will not raise it for the 5th consecutive year. We will announce a player equipment fitting date as the season gets closer, we usually hold it on June 1st (the last day of registration).

8/4/2015- The head coach for the Blackhawks and the Sabres is ill today, can anyone step up and shuffle players in and out during those games?
7/28/2015- With temperatures hovering around 90* today, please make sure that your child gets enough fluids before, during, and after the game. We have an on site water fountain located inside the building near the restrooms, just bring a water bottle and fill up! Beginners and Pee Wees will have practices this Saturday, check the schedule for times.
Adults playing in the adult league, there will be no more alcohol allowed on the property. This is mainly due to the profanity that has been associated with having a good time after the games. Please patronize our sponsors instead of drinking around the rink. Thanks.
7/15/2015- A very BIG thank you goes out to Mr. Fred Ardillo! His grandson Noah plays in the beginner division and Fred along with his two older grandsons took it upon themselves to put together a section of bleachers this past weekend so that spectators could sit and be more comfortable. He has told me over the past few weeks that his motto is “If everyone does a little, then one doesn’t have to do so much” I agree and I am very thankful for the help of Fred. If you happen to find yourself sitting and more comfortable in the next few weeks while at the rink, seek out Fred and thank him!
7/15/2015- Practices this Saturday… 10 am Blackhawks, 11 am Sabres, 12:15 pm Penguins. Teams and players get better through practice! I can see it when I’m out there reffing.
7/10/2015- The beginners (Blackhawks) and Pee Wee (Sabres) will practice on 7/18 & 8/1/2015 at 10 am and 11:15 am respectively.
7/1/2015- Even though the rains came, we were able to complete both the beginners and pee wee games Tuesday evening. The results and scorers are posted on our schedule/results page. Reminder that the Blackhawks (white beginners) will practice tomorrow night, July 2nd at 6pm with the Sabres (white pee wee) to follow at 7pm. The adults play tonight (Wednesday) at 6:15pm.

The Blackhawks (white team) in the beginners will practice July 2nd at 6pm. The Sabres (white team) in the Pee Wee division will practice at 7pm.
6/23/2015- Opening Night! The beginners play at 6pm (parents, please have them there no later than 5;30p so that we can hand out shirts and the coaches can plan their lines). The Pee Wee’s play at 7pm, (parents, 6:30p would be great!). I believe that the rain will head out but just in case, remember… we do not cancel games ahead of time! We have tried to do this in the past for convenience and wound up canceling when the sun came out and we could have played! therefore, all players must show up at the rink. Good luck to all tonight and remember to check the newspaper for scores and goals in the following days.
6/18/2015- Games begin this coming Tuesday, June the 23rd with the beginners at 6pm (please have all players there no later than 5:30 pm for shirt hand out and so that the coaches may organize their lines). The Pee Wee division will play at 7 pm (again please have these players there at 6:30 pm for the same reasons). The adults will begin their season on Wednesday, June 24th at 6:15 pm. Looking forward to a wonderful season of hockey!
We will try to have the bleaches, scoreboard and rink painted as soon as it stops raining! Hopefully all of these will occur very soon. For the games… I would ask that all parents watch from the North, South or West ends of the rink, the coaches and players need their space and it kinda gets too congested with the parents on the East side of the rink. You may come into the area in between periods to assist with equipment and drinks but please return to the viewing areas. Please keep an on your children who are not playing and have them refrain from visiting the golf area unattended, it is a dangerous place with all of the golfers swinging clubs!
